We had a delightful lunch: pleasant ambiance, good food and fine wine, and at a very fair price. We can recommend the gazpacho. The foie gras was good but not exceptional, and when we ordered the Sauterne we received an openhandedly generous pour, which we...More

I was in Paris just two months ago and visited this restauran, again, every single day. It continues to have the best souffle in the world and a wonderful place to eat. Will repeat every time I visit.

I'm glad I didn't read the recent reviews before having dinner with my wife here. Otherwise we would not have gone, which would have been a real shame. We were having a late evening walk in this delightful part of Paris and trying to find...More

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic

dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
